There was a new pogo plug series 4 announced yesterday for $99 although I've found it for $75  already. The interesting thing about it is that it comes with 2x USB-3 ports, a sata port (in the form of USM), gig ethernet and SD. Didn't manage to find decent internal specs for it but it looks like it might be a Marvell  processor, if so there should be reasonable support as the XO has a Marvell processor. To support the gig, 6gb sata and 2 usb3 ports I would suspect it would have to be some form of ARMv7 but it looks like it could be an interesting device when more of the details emerge.
